Just spray WD40 to the ^ button, it's easy and will work!

is this an easy fix, like opening it up and cleaning the connectors? is it a common problem?

i dont want to void warranty, but if its easy to do, i rather do it myself than go without a charger for a month.

ryan lee, can u advise what i should do?

Default Error

It seems something wrong, I've never seen that case before.

Are other battery/charging mode okey? but only happened in Li-po charge?

I'm sure temp probe is not touching any hot surface.
This case only happened in LI-po function on the charger

Never experience case like this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Yes, everything is OK except the Li-Po charge mode. Quite confused.
Thanks

Can you do "Factory reset" then check it once more?

Thanks,

Default 19t, stock 1/12 IB 3800's

Can anyone recommend a good CTX setting for 19t and stock 4 cell.

I found the 3300 setup on the Nexus site but I need one for IB3800's

Also to repeak what is the best method? I'm assuming you use linear charge with lockout turned off. Can you adjust the repeak time after the ctx mode has completed a charge?

I prefer a linear charge on the IB3800's on the cell master. I use 6.0 amps and a 10 cutoff. With a heatsink I go a little higher, and with the warming tray I turn in down a bit. Basically shoot for 130-135 deg temp at peak. Has been working great for me in every class.

Most racers are preferring a linear charge for stock and 19t 1/12. 1/12 cars are super efficient, use only 4 cells, and have less agressive motor setups, so dropoff has not been as bad of an issue with 480+ second runtime IB cells.

It is a good idea to use the long lockout for linear charging because of the super low delta peak settings utilized by the CM. For repeaking, obviously you would not activate the lockout.

CTX charge does have an adjustable auto-repeak function. You can set a automatic repeak with a linear charge by setting up a linear CTX charge (same charging rate in all three steps).

Using the cell master to charge the mini packs that come with the 18T. What settings/mode should I use. Also can I discharge using the CM? If so what setting for that?

Thanks
